The butterfly garden was nice and peaceful. The walk was nice and we saw some monkeys. Not really one of the nicest walks we did in Nicaragua, but ok. The beach at the end of the walk is small (because the water level was high)...More

The Laguna at Charco Verde is a lovely secluded spot that is very quiet and relaxing. They also have a butterfly sanctuary that is very therapeutic. The walk around the laguna only takes about an hour and it is teeming with life.

Chaco Verde is a beautiful nature reserve on the shores of Lake Nicaragua that contains a small lagoon. While walking around, we saw tons of monkeys, birds, and butterflies. I definitely recommend stopping here while visiting Ometepe.

I wouldn't call this a must do but it was certainly enjoyable. We went in the evening and there were howler monkeys playing over our heads. We spent about 2 hours walking around.

The Laguna Charco Verde has some great trails for exploring around the lagoon. After visiting the mariposaria and spying a few butterflies, we explored around the lagoon and its beautiful and peaceful environs. A symphony of birds trailed our every move. Our best moment was...More

We went there with bus, which was great experience, and then there is 10 min walk to entrance. If you go straight you can take a swim on the beach near hotel, and there is restaurant too. It is enough, you do not need to...More
